Fishing with Kathi

Hello, Kathi here today to host the blog. Today I am sharing with you a 12 x 12 layout I created using the Anchors Aweigh collection.

The back ground paper is Mulberry 101 and the photo mats are 105 and 101.

Details of the photo mats. I created fishing line with bakers twine hooked on the salmon under the corner of the upper left of the photo mats.

On the upper right of the layout. I die cut the clock and the number 2 from Mulberry 100. The alphas on the FISH sentiment were die cut from white cardstock for the back ground and Mulberry 105. The flourishes were cut from 105 and 100.

The flourishes, flags and quote mats are cut from 100 and 105.
Bakers twin was placed around the quote and part of the photo and photo mats. I cut out a die cut with 100. All the edges distressed with Berry Jam Powder Puff Chalking Ink. Accents also include button brads from my stash.

Quick Quotes Supplies:
Mulberry Paper Pack: 100, 101 and 105
PowderPuff Chalk Ink: Berry Jam (2016)

Printing Journaling on Your Page with Connie

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the Adventure Waits collection by Quick Quotes. I tried something different by printing my journal notes right on the page. So easy to do with the iP8720 Canon Printer.

The journal notes were printed on the bottom of the scrapbook page.  I used Microsoft Word to write the text in and then printed from there.

The page has stamped embellishments created with PowderPuff Chalk Inks and stamps. The inks were used to color in the stamped images also.

So easy and works great with a Q-tip to move the ink around on the stamped image.

More embellishments were stamped using the PowderPuff Chalk Inks and trimmed out and adhered, in the embellishment cluster, above the journal notes.

Seashore Inspiration with Susie!

Hello and welcome! Susie hosting the blog today and I am ready for summer!

Maybe it has something to do with the Adventure Awaits collection!  The blue, aqua and coral color scheme and all the beachy seashore images are perfect for this time of year and I have a layout to share with you!

I layered lots of papers to create a central mat for the picture.  The chipboard tag is from the Anchors Aweigh Collection and it coordinates beautifully!

I used a craft knife to cut out one of the starfish arms and pulled it out on top of my layers.  Instant dimension!  I distressed and inked the edges of the papers with Slate PowderPuff Chalking Ink. The Sunshine Vellum looks great over the faux wood paper!

I always feel so grateful for any time I am able to spend with family and friends - and if it happens to be at the beach I know I am blessed! This perfect sentiment was cut out of the 12" x 12" Quotes and Phrases sheet.

June Club Q with LeeAnn

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a Father's Day project. Although Father's Day was just a couple days ago, I am not able to see my son in law until today so the timing worked perfectly.

I used pieces from the June Club Q Kits featuring the Anchor's Aweigh Collection to make this project.  I really love how it turned out and have to make another for myself. What was really great about this project is it gave me the opportunity to use my Canon Selphy printer again, and I love using it!

The first thing I did was grab all the pre-made tags from the kits, this made it easy to start as part of the work was already done for me!

I then used Anchors Aweigh 100 and cut 2 strips that were each 3 inches high and 12 inches long to serve as the backing for the tags. I like this paper as it has the really pretty aqua blue on the one side and a pretty sea shore design on the other.

From there I grabbed my "Father's Day" stamp set and cut a white panel to put in the inside, and then stamped "Happy Father's Day" using Royal Blue Powderpuff Chalking Ink.

I used a number die set to cut out the numbers 2017 and used my Xyron X to adhere them to the appropriate pages.

The chipboard sentiment is from AW802 Chipboard Set.

The Happy Happy Happy sentiment is from the Anchors Aweigh 500 sentiment sheet. 

Let me just say, I started this project three times before finally coming up with a plan I really liked and wanted to share. One of these days I will have to do a bloopers post, ha ha!

I hope you have all enjoyed this project, it was a fun one to make and hopefully my son-in-law will like it as well. He is in the Coast Guard and this nautical themed paper is perfect for projects I can make for him.

June Club Q Inspiration with June!

Hello Quick Quote fans, June here today.

I am loving the June Club Q kit, it is all about summer and fun! You can check it out here.

I was inspired by the beautiful orange striped paper and white chipboard suns in the "Big Altered Project" kit, it was prefect for this photo of my son leaping into the air on his last day of school.


Even though the original design of the Big Altered Project kit is to create a mini album, I found it worked well for making 12" x 12" pages, too! (Two papers were also used from the Page Layout option.)

The small pre-cut papers work well as photos mats, backgrounds and accents, plus there are so many cute, white chipboard pieces to play with. With the addition of the Page Layout option (or save by buying the Ultimate Combo Club Q) you can make several matching pages.

To bring extra pizzazz to this page:
  • Suns and "summer" chipboard from the kit was backed with white cardstock that was colored by blending Sunset and Buttercup PowderPuff Chalking Inks to make them POP
  •  A frame and 2 flowers from the kit were colored with Sunset and Buttercup PowderPuff Chalking Inks
  • 3 flowers from the kit were colored with Seafoam and Sky Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink
  • Raffia from the kit was added to the title
  • Several cut-apart quote banners were attached with mini copper brads from the kit
  • All the papers were edged with Sunset or Seafoam PowderPuff Chalking Inks
  • Drywall mesh tape and ribbon (not included) were added to the background for texture

Graduation Inspiration with Kathi

Graduations are happening all over from pre-school to college.

Kathi here to share with you a 12 x 12 layout, I created for this time of the year for our local high school. I have mixed and matched several paper collections to create this layout. Don't hesitate to play with the papers to create a project. Many of the paper lines go hand in hand.

The 12 X 12 base paper is QQP-AW101. 

The middle of the layout, I die cut the balloons out of the same paper as the base paper, then layer ed on to black card stock. I distressed the balloons using Coral PowderPuff chalking Ink (from my stash). The strings and celebrate also from black card stock.

The lower right of the layout. Here you can view all of the quotes that was used. I used quotes from 49 Shades of Gray 500.

On the left you will see the flower that was created with Anchors Aweigh 109 using Berry Jam PowderPuff Chalking Ink to distress the edges of the flower with a brad center. 

The quotes came from Shades of Gray 500. The quotes can be seen as well. The photo mats are from 49 Shades of Grey 102 and Windsong 100.

The upper right of the layout, I used a large graduation cap cut out (Created from glitter paper) with 2017 already cut out of the cap, I added glossy accents to make the year pop. I added the letters cut out of Anchors Aweigh 101.

Masculine Card Inspiration with Alicia!

Good morning! Alicia here today with some Father's Day inspiration.  I made these two cards for my father and father in law, I love the woodgrain paper so much I used it on both cards.  

This first one I sent to my dad.  I started with the image, a water brush and an assortment of PowderPuff Chalking Inks. I used the same water brush to color all the image and the background. I love how the water color effect made a really great sky and grass in one layer.  The tractor's red took a few layers of ink to get the color more vibrant.  

I then layered my water colored image on a few die cut layers of papers from several different collections: Adventure Awaits Paper Pack, 49 Shades of Grey and Urban Oasis.  I stamped and die cut my sentiment. I inked all the edges generously and added some finishing touches of fiber, button and metal embellishments.

My second card is for my father in law.  I think he will enjoy this one very much.  He always saves my cards.  On this image I used several blue hues of PowderPuff Chalk Inks and a water brush to create just the "old" blue color I was looking for in this image. I complimented the image with blue papers from various collections of Quick Quotes papers. 

I stamped my sentiment, die cut some pieces and added some unique fiber.  I inked all the edges and adhered the pieces down to my card base. I touched some of the "metal" pieces of the truck with a metallic silver pen for some finer detail.

Father's Day Inspiration with Martha

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you an inspiration layout for Father's Day that I made using a great combination of Quick Quotes papers and my Canon PIXMA TS 9020 to print the photo.

Take a look at my page:

  Layout for Father's Day

  • To create this I used 12"x12" Urban Oasis 102 for the base. 
  • Then I cut a second layer using Earth Wind Fire 105 - the size of this layer is 10"x10" 
  • Paste it directly over the base.

  Layout for Father's Day

  • I selected one photo of my daughter to print from my phone and sent it directly to my Canon PIXMA TS 9020 using 4" x 6" semi glossy paper. 
  • I love to use this option because it's quick and easy. 
  • This Canon printer gave me the option to connect my social media directly with the printer and use different type of papers to print my images. 
  • Also, I can to edit the images from the screen of the printer. 
  • I pasted the photo directly over the second layer and created different rectangles using other designs of decorated papers like both sides of Urban Oasis 100 and the striped side of Earth Wind Fire 100
  • On the center of these rectangles, I stamped two different images using PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • First I stamped the ink splatter image using PowderPuff Chalk Ink Desert Sun 
  • Then, I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set Dad's Day using PowderPuff Chalk Ink Midnight Confessions, one of my favorite colors. 
  • As final touch I die cut the word HI using Urban Oasis 102 to complete my idea and the style of my daughter to get a smile from my husband when he receives this present!

  Layout for Father's Day

I pasted all the layers of this project using snail adhesive because at the end I want to put it on close frame.

Masculine Page featuring Earth Wind Fire

Hi, Connie here with scrapbook page using the Earth Wind Fire collection.

I had a bunch of scrap pieces from this collection so they were incorporated into the design of the page.  Love using scraps up!!

I started by mounting the photos on a sheet of pattern paper about the size of a 8" x 10".  I stuck little pieces of pattern paper all around the edges.  I even used die cuts.  Nothing was off limits.  The stitching is from a stamp but the machine stitch would look great too.

I love the border the small pieces of paper gives the matted photos. They are shaded with different PowderPuff Chalk Inks. Such a fun and easy project to create while using up all of those little bits and pieces that we all save.

This is my oldest son with his three boys. We are surely Blessed!!!

Masculine Inspiration with Susie!

Hello and welcome! Susie hosting the blog today and I am sharing a card featuring paper from the Urban Oasis Collection.

This month's Friday Challenge 76 is to create a card or project with a masculine theme and I decided to play along!

I started by stamping the image on paper from the Windsong Collection 103.

I stamped the image on paper for the clothes and trimmed everything out.  This technique is called paper piecing.

Once he was assembled, I used PowderPuff Chalking Inks to add color to his hair and sleeves.  I stamped onto my craft mat, spritzed a little water and then used a paintbrush to add the color.

I also used the Light Moss to stamp a little subtle texture onto the patterned paper.

I mounted the doll with dimensional foam and added the chipboard word, Dream.

I created a small embellishment cluster using a Chipboard Die Cut tag from the Whistlin' Dixie Collection, a wood chippie and a cute little flair button with a compass!

You still have plenty of time to play along with our Masculine Card or Project Challenge!  You can find all the details HERE.
